I "grew up" in Troop 54, Succasunna, N.J. during the 60's and remember an
annual troop contest on Morse Code. Anyone (no limit) who got 100% on
the test message was treated by the troop mother's club to a first run
movie in "The City" (NYC)! and lunch at the "automat"! I remember I took
me two years to get there. The memory of being a winner lasts forever,
unfortunately the Morse Code knowledge doesn't!
